7 Deadly Sins Book Tag

Hello everyone, today I have another fun book tag for you all! I was not tagged by anyone in particular but saw this tag on The Introverted Book Nerd and decided that I would like to do it as well!


What is the most expensive book you own? What is the least expensive book you own?
This is really difficult for me to answers because I have a lot of books and prices change all the time? I’ve gotten several really nice hardcover books for $3 on sale and a plethora of free or 99¢ kindle ebooks. For most expensive books, I mean I still own several textbooks and other academic books that are well over $100 a piece and I cringe over how much money I had to spend on books during my college years, even after deal hunting online.


What book or books have you shamelessly devoured many times?
There is only one book that I’ve read over and over again and that is Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell. It is my favorite book from my childhood and I’ve read it more than ten times over the course of my lifetime. I don’t normally do a lot of re-reads but this is one of the very few exceptions. Now that I’ve read it at least once during childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, I think it’ll be a while until I read this book again as I know the story quite well. But I do plan on sharing the book with my daughters once they’re old enough to read chapter books.


What book or series have you neglected over sheer laziness?
Umm, can I just put down all book series? Because I am really bad about keeping up with them. I guess if I had to pick at least one, I’d have to go with Harry Potter. I’ve read all but the final book and I’ve been really bad about getting back to it. By the time the final book came out I was an adult and had kind of lost that fervor for the series that I had felt when I was in middle and high school, and once I had watched the movie I went ‘meh.’ I’ll more than likely just do a re-read someday and finish it then.


What book or books do you bring up when you want to sound like an intellectual reader?
…Any of the books that I read over the course of obtaining my degree. I’ve kept all of the books that I was assigned and no joke, I actually read most of them start to finish including two text books. Not small textbooks, mind you, I’m talking 800+ page science books. Don’t ask me why because I don’t know either, reading is one of the best ways for me to study.


What attributes do you find most attractive in your characters?
Maturity and intelligence I guess. I end up really liking the tired middle aged magical types from fantasy novels and I can’t explain why. In a world where there are so many bad boys, rakes, boy next doors, dashing princes, and creepy obsessed stalker types – where the quiet and mature men at? Remus Lupin from Harry Potter and North from Shimmer and Burn were huge book crushes for me. When it comes to manga and anime I have a serious megane fetish and yeah, don’t judge me.


What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
Is this even a question? Anything by the infallible MARGARET ATWOOD. She is my all-time favorite author and I’ve steadily been collecting all of her books in some form or another. While I have a few books on ebook (who can resist those sales!?) I also own quite a few physical copies and am always happy to add another one of her glorious books to my bookshelf. I can’t understate my love for Atwood or her work, she’s a clever woman that I would absolutely love to meet one day.


What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Heather Gudenkauf. Thus far I’ve read three and found them to be extremely love or hate for me. Part of the reason being that the protagonists seem to be pretty similar in that they do some things of questionable legality in order to investigate the mysteries they’re involved with and I just always find them to be obnoxious. Even though I absolutely adored The Weight of Silence and Not A Sound I still have my issues with plot and characterization and because of this I always hesitate when picking up another one of her books.

  1. Tired middle aged magical types is the most accurate description of my type I’ve seen I had a huge crush on Remus Lupin too! Still do tbh.

    1. Haha yeah, when I really sat down to think about it I realized that all my book crushes were both wizards and older intelligent types that keep to themselves… Not sure what that says about me but hey!

  2. “I actually read most of them start to finish”
    I am guilty of this. I read cookbooks front to back, and part of it has made me get very sad when the cookbooks are just recipe focused. Like, your not going to tell me the history of the food? Or tell me about the 20 different types of rices out there?! But I think one of the craziest text-book cookbooks I’ve read was The Art of Fermentation, which was 500 pages of describing how to make various fermented foods, history, and very vague recipes. I love how laid back the food safty was, there was a lot of “yeah, just scrape off the mold, you’ll be fine” except for the chapters on meat and cheese which was “this is complicated and you can die, just get like, you know, a real book about sausage and cheese?” I’ve tried reading my text books front to back, and I always ran out of time. I think I did read a history of radio and television book front to back, but that was only 600 pages.

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only person that reads the whole textbook, I did it because it’s the best way for me to learn the content. I had classmates that looked at me like I was crazy, but those were the same classmates that only did the bare minimum needed to pass a class, while I always shot for A’s.

      I didn’t even know that there were cookbooks that had more than just recipes in them! If there are ones that have history or scientific information about the foods then I would definitely be more keen on reading them. I imagine fermentation would be kinda tricky with safety as well, given the process, sounds funny actually haha.

  3. I was a Sirius fangirl- we can’t discuss it, because it may spoil somebody, but needless to say, it didn’t end well. I have yet to spend 100+ bucks on a book, but I have successfully evaded college for the past 7 years, so that would be why. I have spent about $100 on a Kindle tablet for reading books, but I don’t know if that would count. I love the SpongeBob gif!

    1. I’d count the Kindle! It’s a medium for reading so it is almost like a book. I loved Sirius too, just not as much as Remus. <3
